of not just the city tradition but the san francisco giants tradition. since we have been in the new ball park, it has been played a total of 573 times after giants wins, including playoff wins and including world series wins. [applause] importantly, you know, we almost lost the giants. in 1993, we made some desperate calls to tony when the team was saved, and we asked tony -- there is only one person that could kick off the new generation, the new era of giants baseball on opening day in 1993, and that was tony bennett. he sang "god bless america" and "i left my heart in san francisco" on that date. it was an unbelievable day. it brought down the house, as did your performance at the all- star game. as did your performance at the world series. you are a huge part of the san francisco giants. as we all know, you have not arrived until you have your own bobblehead.

and our mutual obligations on the environment, and then there is something that paris and san francisco hold very dearly and that's an ongoing conversation about our human rights as world leaders, so it's human rights, it's the environment, it's the economy and these are the reasons why we hold our relationship with paris and with all the other great cities of the world in a sister city relationship so dearly, we learn from each other, we send delegations to each other, we welcome each other to the city but in each and every instance, we are always thinking about ideas about how we can help each other and help regions improve, so i am excited to have met with the mayor just a few minutes ago to reaffirm our relationship and we'll sign that in a few moments to document that and to promise each other that we will continue this very great relationship and we could not have done it without the involvement of our private citizens, tom horn has led a fantastic group of volunteers on our sister city committee for paris and san francisco, and he's doing a marvelous job and this again reflects

woods, i am here, i'm with the san francisco human rights, black human rights leadership council of san francisco. absolute power produced absolute corruption. keeping this agency board of commissioners behind closed doors without public knowledge, they have been the leading power behind the most of the people being evicted out of the city of san francisco in terms of the laws that they lay, what they're, the arrogance of their position. when you have the residents go before them because they are not being, they are not under the eye of observation. then you really see the bad side of why you need to bring this organization to the light where they could be observed. i think it's a good thing but by the same, we need it done like 25 years ago. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >> my name is [inaudible] ladies and gentlemen. the history goes back to 25 years ago to the housing authority and my statement i have been using at your commission for years, ain't no mystery, check your history. ladies and gentlemen, there's deeper history in what we're talking about with the ci

francisco, san francisco priorities. all of these projects received a commitment of some of the regions discretionary funds to be funded between now and 2040. the third highlight --0 there was a new program, nu funding program created during the lesson strategy process known as the one bay area block grant. first under the region has tied transportation investment dollars to land-use, and would local jurisdictions have been doing in terms of planning for growth. while in the past transportation funding is often distributed based on a population-based approach, but other factors such as how successful counties have been in planning for and building new affordable housing is considered in how much funding a jurisdiction receive. also how large the rena allocation is and how much of that is a below market rate is also considered in the distribution formula. this is something that we have asked the region to do for quite some time to tie vision to resources; it is not perfect but it is a great step in the right direction and we are excited about this program. finally based on a lot of a
elements together enable a concrete relationship between paris and san francisco and even remember it last time, with had a virtual highway between san francisco and paris, we started this virtual highway, it had a lot of babies and a lot of [inaudible] in paris and in san francisco was created, were developed from this common belief that we had in innovation, in research and with the need of building economic development on new technology, on new ways of living and creating wealth and progress of the 21st century. and it's in this spirit that with [inaudible] that i'm happy to salute with all my friendship, we are going to start a new period of our links, our ties, mayor lee is a very popular man, a very popular mayor and i want to know first the reputation of the people of san francisco through him and through his progress. we have another common link, we believe that innovation can be noble if it starts many the people, so from the intervention of people in the democracy, a dynamic democracy, of course with new cooperation, new act of cooperation, first of all, there's always in
are seeing in san francisco. so we all should be grateful that we work in this very unique and interesting environment. i am also grateful to jerry and rob speyer for driving this company that can take on and capitalize projects. there are few companies able to do this. i feel very lucky to be part of such a strong and wonderful team and to work with my colleagues here in san francisco. i have to talk first today about what we see going on and then i'm going to talk a little bit about how we at tishman speyer want to capitalize on that. i'm going to start at the risk of boring everyone with a couple of charts. the first chart shows the average sales prices for office buildings in blue. it shows the average replacement costs in green and the line is the cap rates for office product in san francisco. and there are a couple of things that i think are worth pointing out in this chart. first, that while values have increased, they still fall short of the peaks that we saw in 2007. also while replacement costs have been fairly steady here in the last several years, if you look back historically,
of central market are yet to come. this is the story of san francisco, a city of innovators, entrepreneurs, risk-takers and doing who look together and work together to make it happen. this is what san francisco is about. this is why i don't get any rest. this is why you don't want get any rest. we want to continue making san francisco the best city in the world. thank you very much for working with all of us. [ applause ] >> thank you mayor lee. what a great tour. i think everybody who hasn't, get out and do this on foot and you can really see the dramatic difference. so now let's take a look at the office market and maybe a little at residential and there is actually an office building underway. tishman spire is the person who will tell us about. so quickly carl is responsible for the portfolio in the san francisco bay area, which is really the whole garet greater bay area and was closely involved in two signature projects over seeing the development of the infinity, 650-unit condominium project and 555 mission, which is the 55,000 square feet building already bottle. and now tishman
to be here. today i live here with my family and raising two young daughters in san francisco.uf for those who don't know me, i am not a religious person. but i think we should all take a moment and say a prayer of thanks for the environment we live in. for all of us who touch bay area real estate, it's really incredible how quickly things have changed. if you go back two, two and a half years and think about what the environment was in the middle of 2010, we were in a terrible environment. values were down significantly. we couldn't lease space it save ourselves and we felt it would be a long, long slug to come out of the hole we were in. here we are, barely two years later, in one of the strongest office markets in the country. the growth for is overwhelming a shrinking of real estate needs and we're not seeing that kind of growth in new york or washington. it's very select markets that we're seeing the kind of growth that you are seeing in san francisco. so we all should be grateful that we work in this very unique and interesting environment. i am also grateful to jerry and rob speyer
, not the least of which is that it produces carbon free public power to the city of san francisco. one of my favorite lines mike just used is this measure is about consolidating from 8 reservoirs to 7. another way to say that is to say this is about draining one of them, the hetch hetchy valley. have other studies said this is feasible? sure, just like tearing down city hall or knocking down the golden gate bridge, that's possible but not feasible. we're not going to spend 3 billion dollars to tear down the hetch hetchy dam. let's not forget, we are also stewards for two dozen cities in the peninsula. over 2 million californians benefit from the foresight of our forefathers almost 100 years ago in building hetch hetchy. while the rest of the state is tying themselves up in knots trying to figure out where to get their water. not only did we have the type of water storage hetch hetchy provides, not only today but in the future, we are in a solid place. and to spend this kind of money, and let's just talk about the $8 million dollars, i think that's one thing we can agree on. this calls
not cover all the needs that we have here in san francisco. for example it only keeps operations and make and for the roads and the transit system that about a two-day level. that is not necessarily a great state of disrepair. there is a next-generation transportation ideas that were not scoped out enough to be included that work is now ongoing in san francisco through the creation of the san francisco just petition transportation plan, the next item on the agendaat this point the region is in eir mode; they are working to release a draft eir in december, and then certify the final eir at the time of the plan adoption which is this upcoming may, 2013. i will close my presentation and happy to help out with any questions you might havethank you. >> opening it up for public comment. if there is any? seeing none, commissioner antonini. >> i have a few questions for whoever is most able to answer these. i noticed the projections show around 191,000 new jobs by 2014, but only 92,000 housing units but one assumes that each housing unit is averaging at least two people;it looks like there i
businesses in san francisco are small employers and why penalize them for growing and being successful? you know, if they start to get more -- i disagree that it's tax on profits because gross receipts is not necessarily profits, profits is a you earn after your expenses, gross receipts, it's what you earn before your expenses. somebody could learn a lot of money on paper and after their expenses they could lose money as a company but still have it pay this tax. >> supervisor, what would you like to say in closing? >> well, i think it's important to note that this was a measure that was worked on really by the people of san francisco. so it's a measure that's not only supported unanimously by the board of supervisors and by our mayor, but it was agreed upon with the business community as well as the entire labor community, the democratic party has endorsed it as well as the republican party. advocates for our homeless and public health system as well as our police and fire fighters and folks that want to build more affordable housing, there really is support for this across the spectrum.
's exciting to see this happen in san francisco, to see its launch, it's exciting that it's an idea that incubated out of the hub, it's exciting to not only see that it's fun for people to get around, to be more efficient and to kind of stralgts the lanes, but it's exciting to know it contributes so much of the goals of this city, the goals that i know our department environment is leading the effort and our city is leading the effort, the board of supervisors working with my office to show case every opportunity we can to have alternative modes, and getting off of oil, it's going to be explained to you in simple terms how you get on these things but i'm so excited already, matt, or mike, that i am presenting to you my personal membership to the scooter network. alright.
